Street photography is also about documenting ordinary life

Most photographers are hunting for stunning images that make it to the top. But if you look at the work of well know photographers like Eisenstein, Bresson or Vivian Maier you will also notice that they were interested in documenting life as it is without searching for oddities or strange situations. Just raw life. Because there is something fascinating about the simple things and the every day routine. We don´t think about the most things we do every day because we are used to it.

Street photography makes every day life visible and adds an artistic standpoint to it. The viewer has the possibility to overthink his every day routine by looking at the resulting images. This is one of the many great aspects of art.
